The eight-hour Masterpiece Theatre miniseries of Charles Dickensís Bleak House stars Gillian Anderson (The House of Mirth, X-Files) and features a screenplay written by Andrew Davies (Bridget Jonesís Diary).

Part romance, part melodrama, part detective story, the novel spreads out among a web of relationships in every level of society, from the simpleminded Sir Leicester Dedlock to Jo the street sweeper. A savage but often comic indictment of a society that is rotten to the core, Bleak House is one of Dickensís most ambitious novels, with a range that extends from the drawing rooms of the aristocracy to the poorest of London slums.
